defjack, The top tube on yours looks a lot lower than mine. My stand over height without the seat is 28". Seat height is about 30". I'll probably loose about an inch if I convert to road tires. More than likely I'll just find a better doner.

Steering adapter came in yesterday and I picked up a set of cables from Wally World for about $5 so I think I have all the parts to complete the bike.

You are right.My frame has an oversize decal on it so it looks like I got lucky. It looks like the crossbar is longer on mine. Jack

Attention Cruzbike Gurus

A question for the Cruzbike gurus.

Step 94 in the instructions says that a cable stop is provided on the underside of the top tube for the front derailleur cable. My top tube has no such cable stop. Any idea how I can mount the cable, short of taking the top tube to a welder? scratch

You can get one from Universal Cycles. Look under cables and housing. Jack

Thanx Jack, you put me on the right track (poetry alert). The ones Universal had were 1 1/8" and I needed 1 1/4", found them on eBay and will order when I get home from work.

Cable stop came in. Hopefully I'll get to work on the Cruzbike next week.

Haven't been working on the Cruzbike as much as I would like. Should have had it done last week.

Today I installed the front & rear brake cables, also the front derailleur cable. The plan for tomorrow is to install the rear (cluster) cable, do all the adjustments and make sure all the bolts are tight. With any luck a quick shake down ride can be taken before work.
